Appleton, WI wrongful death lawyer

The death of a loved one is difficult in any circumstances, but it can be especially painful if a person was killed because of someone else’s negligence or wrongful acts. In these cases, a person’s surviving family members will not only suffer a great deal of emotional pain, but they may also experience significant financial difficulties. In addition to the loss of the income earned by the deceased person, there may have been a variety of other expenses, such as medical treatment prior to the person’s death and funeral and burial costs. In order to address the financial and personal impact of a loved one’s death, their survivors may be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who was responsible.

Wrongful Death Cases in Wisconsin

Wisconsin law defines wrongful death as the death of a person that is caused by another person’s “wrongful act, neglect, or default.” If a victim could have sought compensation from the liable party through a personal injury lawsuit had the death not occurred, their survivors may pursue a wrongful death claim. Eligible survivors include a spouse or domestic partner, children, parents, and in some cases, siblings. The personal representative of a person’s estate may also file a wrongful death action.
